The Chicago Bears have selected Iowa State RB David Montgomery with the 73rd overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact:

Although the Bears immediately brought in Mike Davis and to replace Jordan Howard, they didn't feel like they had the in-between the tackles punch in their backfield. Davis could be a better fit to spell Tarik Cohen. As a result, Chicago targeted Montgomery, who at one time was viewed as one of the top running backs in the draft. Falling to the third round, the Bears found tremendous value with the Iowa State alum, who could find himself in a significant early-down role when its time to play for real.
